stories in the park

The relaxing summer days of homework-free bliss is our favorite time at the library, so The Provo City Library has designed our favorite activity, Stories In The Park, to include the things we love most about summer to  help your children have fun AND keep reading. 

From May to July, our fabulous children’s storytellers along with their puppet friends visit a different park around Provo for a fun and adventure with songs and stories. Every weekday morning from 10:00 to 10:30, children of all ages enjoy a dynamic program in the sunshine. 

Storytime in one of Provo’s beautiful parks breaks out of the traditional storytime-mold to include more activities and fun in the sun while experiencing the fun of reading. The Librarians from The Children’s Department created a hopping program with songs, stories, puppets and secret codes. 

Join us in the park this summer!  Come with your library card and borrow books from the selection we will have on hand.  

Mondays:  Lion’s Park
Tuesdays:  Bicentennial Park
Wednesdays:  Boulders Park
Thursdays:  Timp Kiwanis Park
Fridays:  Lakeview Park

With challenges and prizes to win throughout the summer, there is still time to sign up for the Summer Reading Program. Earn entrance to our exclusive End of Summer Reading Pool Party for reading and being out of doors.
